.AVIATION...
A couple of surface boundaries were providing a variety of
aviation concerns at 17Z. A boundary near KUTS and KCLL was
providing IFR conditions at both sites. Another boundary further
to the south was helping to generate a line of scattered showers
between the KHOU and KLBX locations. Even more showers and
isolated thunderstorms were located off of the coast. The latest
high resolution models still indicated best chances for
thunderstorms from KIAH to the coast mainly during the afternoon
period. Cannot rule out a thunderstorm to the north, but think the
chances for at least isolated showers are better over or near
KCLL, KCXO, and KUTS. Another night of near MVFR conditions are
possible with a slight chance of LIFR conditions. Will like to see
what the next model run output has before committing to lower
conditions.

UPDATE...
No major changes were made to the previous forecast. Showers and
thunderstorms are currently focused offshore and well to the west
over Central Texas. Showers and thunderstorms should get going
across SE Texas early this afternoon once we reach convective
temps. With PWs remaining over 2" across much of the area, some of
these storms may produce locally heavy rainfall. Highs are
forecast in the 80s this afternoon. 11
